The Sunday Times recently revealed its top forty UK beaches and while Devon missed out on the overall top spot, they have ranked above Cornwall in the top five and with Devon taking the crown for the south west.

Devon’s highest ranking beach was Woolacombe in North Devon coming in at number 4. Woolacombe is one of Devon’s most popular beaches and is perfect for families as well as those wanting to take part in the watersports that the north Devon coastline is famous for.

Three other Devon beaches were featured in the list: Mill Bay was number 13, Beer, 15 and Bigbury, 20.
